I experienced performance problems with one of my applets. Turning on tracing from the Java console reveals that, if I read the trace right, the ResourceBundle caused the classloader to check the network, but why?
Has anyone an answer?
Here is the trace ( is the same when I run the applet from the Internet ):
I by my self use ResourceBundle in my applet and it is also causing network connections as you can see in the trace. JFreeChart is about 1.0 MB what is quit big for use in applets. From the source I extracted just the classes I need and included them in my root jar.
